The Best Marine Noise Reduction Materials

Boat manufacturers need to use high-quality noise-reduction materials to improve boat quality, safety, and passenger comfort. A quieter environment on board is one of the significant factors potential customers consider when buying a boat, and many will pay to have the engine room as silent as possible. Boat manufacturers use specialized marine noise reduction materials […]

Mass Law & Sound Transmission Loss

The mass law describes the relation between sound frequency, mass per unit area, and sound insulation efficacy. In other words, a material with a higher density is less likely to vibrate when in contact with sound waves and will transmit less noise through the substrate. The sound transmission loss of a floor or wall differs […]

What to Look For in Acoustic Absorbers

Acoustic absorbers are products that prevent sound waves from reflecting off of hard surfaces. Due to their ability to absorb and block sounds, they play an essential role in improving acoustics in many industrial contexts, particularly OEM equipment and enclosures. Acoustic absorbers help create safer, more productive spaces for living and working. This article will […]

Ways To Measure Industrial Equipment Sound Levels

Ways To Measure Industrial Equipment Sound Levels

A decibel (dB) is a unit of measurement measuring the intensity or loudness of sound. The unit of measurement was developed as a result of efforts to measure signal loss in telegraph and telephone lines. Bell Telephone Laboratories created the new unit of measurement in 1928, naming it the “bel” in recognition of communications innovator […]

Thermal Insulation vs. Acoustic Insulation

When people talk about insulation, they’re referring to one of two types: thermal insulation or acoustic insulation. Thermal insulation materials reduce radiant and conductive heat. Common forms are foam insulation, reflective barriers, and blankets, which are found in both residential and industrial settings, where high-temperature insulation is critical for safe operations. On the flip side, […]

At Technicon Acoustics, we offer a range of solutions, including acoustic absorbers and acoustic barriers, […]

High vs Low-Frequency Noise: What’s the Difference?

You may be able to hear the distinction between high and low-frequency noise, but do you understand how they are different scientifically? Frequency, which is measured in hertz (Hz), refers to the number of times per second that a sound wave repeats itself. When sound waves encounter an object, they can either be absorbed and […]
